Apple releases iOS 7 beta for iPad and iPad mini

The just-released iOS 7 beta 2 has now hit Apple's developer portal and the big news is -- an iPad version is now available for download alongside the iPhone and iPod touch version. Two weeks ago, at WWDC 2013, Apple released iOS 7 beta 1 but restricted it to iPhone and iPod touch only, saying an iOS 7 beta for iPad would coming in the following weeks.

Looks like those weeks have followed. If you're an iPad developer and you've been waiting on it, go get it at developer.apple.com (opens in new tab).

  • How does multitasking work on the tablets ?
  • U can use four finger swipe up and it bring the cards style multitasking just like in iPhone. But on the iPad it looks a bit unusual. Needs getting used to. Sent from the iMore App
  • Going to download it now
  • I restored back to 6.1.3 - my local paper's e-edition PDFs would not display properly in Safari... AirPlay of an audio stream to my AppleTV dropped out frequently... multitasking was quirky... And Navigon app doesn't work with iOS7.
